THEY OFFER THE HANDS ON DRIVING EXPERIENCE PLACING ?UENTS REAL LIFE WORLD SITUATIONS. JEFF WENDALL AND SARAH NIGHT ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE SCHOOL AND THE UPCOMING COURSE. GOOD FRIDAY! GOOD. HOW IS EVERYONE DOING? GREAT. THEN YOU’RE DOING BETTER THAN I AM. AND THEN FIRST TELL US ABOUT THE SCHOOL IN PARTICULAR. AND THE STREET SURVIVAL BEGINS IN 1992 AND THIS YEAR WE HOPE TO HAVE OVER 100 SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AND IT IS A COURSE THAT IS AUGMENTING ANYTHING A TEENAGER LEARNS IN HIGH SCHOOL OR FROM THEIR PARENTS AND IT IS ACTUALLY HANDS ON. WOW! AND SO HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DRIVING EDUCATION PROGRAMS? SOME ARE THEORY BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY HANDS ON. WE DROP A WHEEL OFF AND HOW IT FEELS AND WE PUT A PERSON ON THE SKIN PAD WITH THE ACTUAL CAR SO IF THEY HAVE THAT HAPPEN AND THINGS LIKE THAT. HOW DID THE SCHOOL GET STARTED? THIS PARTICULAR ONE? YEAH. THE LOCAL PORSCHE CLUB AND BMW CLUB GOT TOGETHER AND ABOUT 45 YEARS AGO, WE HAD ABOUT 4 OF THEM NOW, WE SIGNED ON WITH TIRE RACK AND PICKED UP THE COURSE AND STARTED TO GIVE IT TO TEENAGERS FROM 15 TO 21. AND IT’S AT THE SALEM CIVIC CENTER AND IF A PERSON CAN’T AFFORD IT WE DO IT FREE. THAT IS HOW IMPORTANT WE CONTINUING IS. SO NOT IN LIEU OF IT BUT WHAT YOU MAY BE DOING PRIVATELY. IT’S TO GET YOU BETTER PREPARE FORWARD REAL LIFE SITUATIONS. AND THESE ARE REAL LIFE SITUATIONS WHERE THERE’S YOUR VEHICLE AND THAT WE CAN’T UNDERSTAND IF YOU JUST BEENING IT. WOW! AND SARAH, I UNDERSTAND YOU’VE TAKEN THIS COURSE. YES. WHAT WAS IT LIKE AND DID IT IMPROVE YOUR DRIVING? WELL, NOT GOING TO LIE. WHEN I FIRST DID IT, WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE, I WAS AFRAID SOMETHING WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AND HONESTLY, AT THAT POINT, I WASN’T USED TO MY CAR. SO I HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE ON THE ROAD AND ESPECIALLY WHERE I LIVE IT’S A LOT OF BACK ROADS. SO IT WAS A STRUGGLE FOR ME TO DRIVE THOSE BACK ROADS. BUT WHEN I TOOK THE CLASS, IT HELPED ME REALIZE THE LIMITATIONS OF MY VEHICLE AND WHAT I AND COULD COULD NOT DO. FOR EXAMPLE ON MY WAY HOME AFTER THE COURSE, I WAS DRIVING BACK AND I FOUND THAT I COULD FINALLY BRAKE, WHICH IS SOMETHING I STRUGGLED TO DO PREVIOUSLY. WOW! SO YOU IMMEDIATELY SAW IMPROVEMENT AND FELT MORE CONFIDENT? YES. SOUNDS LIKE IT. THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT AND A VEHICLE IS IN SOME WAYS A WEAPON SO TO BE ABLE DEAD SERIOUS. IN ORDER TO BE BEHIND THE WHEEL, THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY. YOU SAID YOU HAVE ONE THAT’S COMING UP AGAIN AND WHEN IS NEXT SESSION? SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH AT THE SALEM CIVIC CENTER AND TO SIGN UP YOU LOOK UP THE TIRE RACK STREET SURVIVAL.ORG AND WE’LL GIVE YOU THE LOCATIONS AND HIT THE BUTTON AND FROM THERE ON YOU CAN SIGN AND WE’RE LOOKING FOR STUDENTS. ALL RIGHT. WE HAVE ROOM FOR A FEW MORE. ANCHOR: SARAH, WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS TO YOUR FRIENDS? DO YOU FEEL THEY SHOULD ALL TAKE THIS CLASS? ABSOLUTELY. IT IS A FUN LEARNING EXPERIENCE AND IT IS GREAT TO LEARN SOMETHING IN THE PROCESS. GREAT. SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE MANDATORY! DEFINITELY NECESSARY. WELL, GUYS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING IN AND GLAD TO HEAR YOU TOOK THE CLASS AND FEELING BETTER ABOUT GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL. WE’RE ALL VERY EXCITE BODY THAT. THANK YOU.
